War from My Window
Installation, 12 x (30 x 40 cm).
Materials: b/w photo
Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp / Donated by the artist, 2010 (Inv. no. S0435_3).
The series of black and white photographs War From My Window is a bold comment on the bloody conflicts in Georgia after the declaration of independence in 1991. Over a period of twelve days, the artist photographs the combat in the centre of his hometown, Tbilisi, from his window. Displayed as a filmstrip and presented as a story, the smoke of the bombs creates an alienating contrast with the seemingly calm, indifferent neighbourhood.
